Can bus ecu width?

Recommended Posts

Hi, 

 

Would it be possible to setup the ecu to send  custom can bus data in any other then the standard 16 bit width? ( as seen in the test calculator )

Ok, thanks. 

Is there any limitations to running all the data in 8 bits? ( Struggling to get compound msg to work with a plex dash, and would like more then 4 different channels in one stream. )

8 bits gives you 255 possible “numbers”.  So things like temperatures where you just want say -50 to 150C will be fine as 8 bits. Channels like Lambda for instance where you want a resolution of 0.01 or 0.001 however will need more bits to allow enough range.

Ok, Thanks. 

 

You don`t happen to have some info on how to set up more then one frame within the same stream when sending data to a plex display?

Yes, and it works just fine doing it like that, but the problem is that it only explains how to do it with one stream-frame. 

And when sending it as a 16 bit data stream, it`s not room for more then 4 different channels. But i need add a few more. And struggling a bit getting it to work with several frames within the same stream.

I guess i could just do it the easy way and just keep adding a new  user stream, but i would rather try to get it working with several frames instead.
